Blood Shrimp Resurrection
I was very disheartened this morning when I got a telephone call from my girlfriend saying that the blood shrimp we added to our new reef tank had died or was on the verge of death. I had found him so fascinating and enjoyable. She said that it had turned white and was hanging limp and motionless. She was going to remove it after work.
When we spoke this evening, she relayed the following to me:
As she sadly went to remove its body from the tank, suddenly it scampered out from a cave! It was alive and well! Not only that, but it was bigger and brighter than ever!
I'm sure it's not news to many here that shrimp apparently shed their entire exoskeleton, but it certainly was to me.
Good times! :)
